Kerry Interviewed on This Week

John Kerry appeared on ABC’s This Week, criticizing both George Bush and Joe Lieberman. Kerry made several important points, including the connection between George Bush’s poor use of diplomacy and the recent war in Lebanon, criticism of Joe Lieberman for “adopting the rhetoric of Dick Cheney” on Iraq, and differentiating beteen Iraq and fighting terrorism. When asked about 2008, Kerry was unconcerned about Hillary Clinton’s lead, noting that at one point he was thirty points down in the polls. Not only was Kerry down by 30 points at one point, he even trailed Al Sharpton and the conventional wisdom at the time was that he had absolutely no chance against front runner Howard Dean.
